New Delhi: Team India take on England in the curtain raiser of the four-match Test series today. Indian fans want a 4-0 win for the hosts, but that is easier said than done, with Team India not perfectly placed ahead of this series. There are a few worries and here are the Top 5.
1. ZAHEER FITNESS ISSUES: The biggest worry for India will be Zaheer Khan's fitness. The left arm pacer bowled less than 14 overs the last time India played England due to injuries. Zak's fitness has been a constant worry with the pacer picking up a groin strain in the Ranji Trophy this month. No wonder then that Sunil Gavaskar has advised a stringent fitness test for him ahead of the first Test.
2. BAD FORM OF OPENERS: One of the biggest tests for India will be the form of their openers. The last time Virender Sehwag scored a Test ton was in November 2010.
